We are committed to raising £9,660 each year to maintain the library opening hours we have enjoyed for many years and including the Saturday opening that Focal has always funded.

#FF0000 Raised £1,769 towards the £9,660 target.

We have a threefold strategy to achieve this funding target:

  •    to raise £3,660 pa from our events programme
  •    to raise £3,000 pa from subscriptions from our patrons and friends
  •    to raise £3,000 pa from donations and grants.

For the financial year to 31 March 2020, we have raised £1,769 against our target of £9,660.  This is a good start to the financial year.  Our very grateful thanks to all who have helped to achieve this result to date.

Details of our friends’ subscriptions scheme and of our patrons’ scheme and our life patron’s scheme are on separate pages.  There is also a template for a Codicil to your will to make a donation to Focal.  Please see the links, print off the relevant page and post or e-mail it to John Prentice, our Treasurer on:(  Even easier, you can pay a £20 member subscription or a £100 patron subscription using PayPal.  Please be sure to include your name, address and e-mail address if you do this.
